Yokohama Bay Stars interested in Rakuten Eagles’ Naoto Watanabe

by on Dec.07, 2010 @ 10:42 am, under NPB

The Yokohama Bay Stars are looking for a pesky hitting middle infielder with speed and are apparently interested in Rakuten Eagle Naoto Watanabe.  And since the Eagles may be looking to clear some room on their roster, the two sides might be able to agree on some sort of a money for player swap.

The Bay Stars are also rumored to be interested Rakuten Eagle Kanehisa Arime as well.

      With the Eagles signing Iwamura and Matsui, they probably can afford to let an infielder go. And since it seems like Iwakuma will be returning next season, they could also probably use the money.

      As for Arime, I’m guessing the Eagles won’t move him for money.

      Incidentally, I should probably mention that the article also says that the Eagles may be looking to open up roster space in order to make room for a foreign player (perhaps for the closer they’re currently looking for).
